Asheville, NC residents learn proper oral care following tooth restoration procedures

Restoration procedure, Asheville, NC

Whether you have your natural teeth or a tooth restoration, good oral hygiene is important. Proper oral care ensures the health of your mouth. For patients missing teeth, following good oral health habits is crucial to protect the surrounding gums and jawbone. Patients in Asheville, NC turn to Dr. Christopher Port of Asheville Smile Center for dental implants to replace missing teeth. Strong bone and supporting structures are necessary for a successful procedure. Our practice educates patients on how to care for dental implants.

Dental implants for tooth restoration

A dental implant is a post surgically placed into the jaw. It takes the place of a missing tooth and can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. Implants mimic the roots of teeth and stimulate the jaw, maintaining bone health, and keeping the teeth from shifting. They also anchor restorations. When topped with a crown, the result is a natural-looking, healthy smile.

Caring for your dental implant

Oral hygiene is always important, but especially before an implant procedure. Your mouth is full of bacteria. Surgical procedures come with the possibility of infections. By minimizing the bad bacteria in the mouth ahead of time, the outcome of the procedure is improved.

After your procedure, you will be given instructions on how to care for your implant. Following the directions and taking proper care of your restoration ensures its longevity. General guidelines for care may include:

  • Avoiding abrasive oral care products so the restoration is not damaged
  • Using a low fluoride toothpaste
  • Using a toothbrush with soft bristles
  • Flossing with unwaxed or implant specific dental floss
  • Using oral irrigators to clean the hard to reach areas

5 Dentist Asheville - 5 Star Review
Ashley Hanes
As someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a LONG time, I must say, everyone there makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in the door until you leave. I'm so glad my friend recommended Asheville Smile Center to me, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a dentist or a new dentist. This place is full of wonderful people, it is extremely clean and very comfortable (massage chairs). Plus there are cookies!
